Playing Politics – Launch Event

Tuesday 7 June 2022
Turfmarkt 99
2511 DP The Hague
Spanish Steps

Both play and politics have the potential to create and imagine worlds in which new rules apply, meanings are created, and possibilities emerge for collaboration, strategy, and creative solutions. In this sense, play and politics have always resonated with each other. But what happens to this kinship in a post-digital society that is dominated by social media platforms? What possibilities emerge for meaningful and mutual connections between play and politics on these platforms and in contemporary culture?

Playing Politics is a new NWO-funded research project to consider these questions from a range of (inter)disciplinary perspectives. We would be delighted if you would join us on June 7 from 17:00 onwards, when we will festively launch this project on the Spanish Steps of the Wijnhaven building in The Hague.

Organizers: Sybille Lammes (PI), Frank Chouraqui, Alex Gekker, Bram Ieven, Saniye Ince, Frans-Willem Korsten, Eleni Maragkou, Sara Polak
